Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

This is our fourth installment of our book reviews project designed to introduce you to books that Cydcor team members find especially valuable.  This review is by Amanda, a Cydcor team member, and is the first review that Amanda has done for us.

Title: Lean In

Author: Sheryl Sandberg

Description of the book: This book focuses on the advancement of women and encouraging women to take on more leadership roles.

Why should you read this? Both men and women can really get something out of this book. It encourages women to keep reaching for new opportunities regardless of future plans. For men, it challenges the way they don’t even realize they may be thinking. The book points out how research shows that success and likeability are positively correlated for men and negatively correlated for women. We have so many strong females at Cydcor, we should all take a moment to look inward and challenge our own thinking.
